But while the ingredients are the same, Ballard and Palahniuk bake at completely different temperatures. Unlike his British counterpart, who tends to cast his American protagonists in a chilly light, holding them close enough to dissect but far enough away to eliminate any possibility of kinship, Palahniuk isn't happy unless he's first-person front and center, completely entangled in the whole sordid mess. An intensely psychological novel that never runs the risk of becoming clinical, Fight Club is about both the dangers of loyalty and the dreaded weight of leadership, the desire to band together and the compulsion to head for the hills. In short, it's about the pride and horror of being an American, rendered in lethally swift prose. Fight Club's protagonist might occasionally become foggy about who he truly is (you'll see what I mean), but one thing is for certain: you're not likely to forget the book's author. Never mind Ballardesque. Palahniukian here we come! --Bob Michaels --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
This is a fabulous book written in a very unique style.
Great read if...you enjoy Chuck's other works, strong characters, interesting takes on society, plot twists, well crafted as well written novels.
I love the movies, don't get me wrong, but there is so much more you can get out of a good book, and Chuck is like that.
I actually enjoyed reading the fight club. Imust say reading it the first time is a little confusing. Read morePublished 17 minutes ago by Bronte

Phenomenal book that is much more invested in the characters and story than the movie leads on. If you liked the movie you'll love the book. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Jason Brevig
